Bitcoin (BTC) has been reinvigorated this weekend, rising by 5% to $9,750 following last Wednesday’s gruelling drop from $10,300 to $9,300.
However, BTC still faces the daunting possibility of falling below $9,000, with the daily 200 EMA at $8,400 being a likely target for a bounce.
In order to truly be back in a bullish position, Bitcoin needs to break above $10,000 and preferably above $11,000 to avoid a fifth lower high.
From a short-term perspective, the one-hour 200 EMA is currently becoming a level of resistance at $9,800, meaning that a break above this level could well signal an upcoming move back above $10,000.
The monthly candle ended up closing at $9,600, marking a second consecutive month in the red. And while there has been some relief over the weekend, the long-term outlook remains bearish following a failure to breach the yearly high of $14,000.

In August 2008, the domain name bitcoin.org was registered. On 31st October 2008, a paper was published called “Bitcoin: A Peer-to-Peer Electronic Cash System”. This was authored by Satoshi Nakamoto, the inventor of Bitcoin. To date, no one knows who this person, or people, are.
The paper outlined a method of using a P2P network for electronic transactions without “relying on trust”. On 3rd January 2009, the Bitcoin network came into existence. Nakamoto mined block number “0” (or the “genesis block”), which had a reward of 50 Bitcoins.
